Wikipedia: Arash Labaf was born in Tehran, Iran. At age ten, he and his family moved to Sweden, where he still resides. Arash has said that the reason he chooses to sing in his native language is because of his "deep attachment to Iran and Persian culture." His debut album, Arash, was released by the Warner Music Sweden in June 2005, after he had finished college. His singles, "Boro Boro" ("Go Away") and "Temptation" (featuring Rebecca Zadig) made it to the hit lists around Europe, and their respective videos garnered significant airplay on more than 20 MTV outlets across the world. In an interview with BBC Persian Television, he has mentioned that his mother and father are from the Iranian cities of Shiraz and Isfahan, respectively. Consequently his family moved to Malmö, Sweden. He resides in Malmö when he is not on tour and considers it his hometown. He has two younger brothers, Ashkan Labaf, a doctor, and Arsalan Labaf, a lawyer >>>
